Problem description

A problem exists with all Apache servers prior to version 1.3.19. The vulnerablity could allow directory indexing and path discovery on the vulnerable servers with a custom crafted request consisting of a long path name created artificially by using numerous slashes. This can cause modules to misbehave and return a listing of the directory contents by avoiding the error page. Another vulnerability found by Procheckup (www.procheckup.com) was that all directories, by default, were configured as browseable so an attacker could list all files in the targeted directories. As well, Procheckup found that the perl-proxy/management software on port 8200 would supply dangerous information to attackers due to a perl status script that was enabled. We have disabled directory browsing by default and have disabled the perl status scripts. There are a few steps required to update Apache properly for Single Network Firewall 7.2. Please also note that you should not use the automatic update facilities of the web interface to update Apache, but should do this either locally or via ssh. 1) Stop apache (service httpd stop) if running 2) Stop httpd-naat (service httpd-naat stop) 3) Completely backup /etc/httpd/conf/* 4) Backup /var/log/httpd and /var/log/httpd-naat (the uninstall scripts of the previous apache versions may remove the log files) 5) Remove the currently installed apache, mod_perl, mod_ssl, and php packages from the system. You can do this using: urpme apache-common 6) Upgrade mm/mm-devel 7) Install the download upgrade packages of apache components using "rpm -ivh *.rpm" 8) Restore your /var/log/httpd and /var/log/httpd-naat backups 9) Start httpd-naat (service httpd-naat start) 10) Start apache if you were previously using it (service httpd start)
